New diesel shop in South Michigan

Hey guys, wanted to let everyone know that I just opened up my diesel performance and repair shop for business. its called American Diesel and is located in Jonesville, MI. Labor rate is much cheaper than a dealer and most independant facilities. We do work on all diesels( cummins, dirtymax, and powerstrokes) big jobs, small jobs, performance items, repair ect. For the next month or two we are running a special on headgasket and ARP head stud installs, customer supplies parts. We already have a couple booked for this week. any question or appointments give me a call, name is Chris.

New member here, mostly browse here and hang out at FTE. Great to see a Mi based shop open up. I had planned on visiting River City Diesel when my warranty is up for studs and egr delete. I will be giving Chris a call much closer. Chris can you tell me your background? Also do you lift the cab while installing studs on a 6.0? Good luck on the new buisness!!

absolutly Rob. Been working at a ford dealership for the last 9 years, been doing stricly diesel for the last 8 years. own my shop for 3 years where I do side work, performance diesel, pretty much whatever comes through the door i'll do it. Im good at what I do, im not the best to walk the earth by no means, but I do damn well I believe. I also work on dirtymax's and cummins for the other side lol. Yes I pull cab anytime I need to tear heads off a 6.0/6.4. My labor is most of the time half that of the dealership. I purchased my own IDS/VCM Ford Diagnostic tool, which is what the dealers use to diag every later model ford so I can do almost anything the dealership can, at my own place. I put pride in my work.
